31down- Metronoma Excerpts

by 31 Down



2 segments from 31 Down radio theater's METRONOMA, a haunted sound portrait of evil and isolation. Evoking the solace of a long walk with H.P. Lovecraft in a bitter New England forest of the 1930's. The simple ticking of a tube-powered metronome conjures unearthly visions as insanity takes hold of the world of an aging writer. Presented by the Ontological INCUBATOR at St. Mark's Church in New York City, August 2006.

31 Down is a radio-transmission based theater company from Brooklyn, NY. Artistically, the vision of the company lies in the hybridization of modern technologies with archaic technologies, systems, established genres and forms. The theater company uses radio transmissions, wireless devices, home security systems and network technologies to expand and contract traditional theatrical spaces.
